The rapid pace and grand scale of China?s rise have produced a heady mixture of wonder and consternation in the West. Is China on track to become a superpower? What would that mean for the rest of the world? China in 2020 presents a native Chinese perspective on the challenges and opportunities that Beijing will face as its global footprint expands. Through a meticulous examination of China?s development trajectory, Hu Angang explains how his nation ? as the world?s largest emerging market ? will impact global economic growth, foreign direct investment flows, energy consumption, and carbon dioxide emissions. He proposes a comprehensive strategic framework to guide the next stage of China?s rise, seeking to maximize the country?s positive impact on the world and minimize the negative externalities of its meteoric development. As India gears up to challenge China as the next economic powerhouse, China in 2020 will provide Indian economists and policy makers invaluable insight into China's growth trajectory over the next decade. About the Author Hu Angang, one of China?s most influential public intellectuals, is a professor at the School of Public Policy and Management and director of the Centre for China Studies at Tsinghua University in Beijing.
